Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Has anyone seen the RS Dead issue?

My son pointed this out to me - in the mag racks as we speak. A collectors issue for only $11.99. So has anyone bought it? Is there anything in it worthwhile that hasn't been discussed here? Is a collectors issue their way of saying we're going to recycle all our old articles and pictures and collect twelve bucks from you?

Not much in there. A few pieces from over the years, more recent short articles on Weir & Owsley, a random list of the 20 "essential" shows, a few pages of '60s SF rock posters, a couple pages of quotes from Garcia, and that's about it. Maybe worth a couple bucks for a total Dead newbie.

Rolling Stone's tribute book to Garcia is a much better buy, it includes much more (including all the pre-'95 articles in this "special collector's issue").

RS also has a collector's issue on Dylan out now, which gathers together various Dylan interviews RS has done. So you get to see one interviewer after another fall on their faces trying to get oracular wisdom out of the ever-evasive Dylan...

The Mikal Gilmore interview from last year is great - not sure it's worth the $12 but you can still read it online free
